On Monday (April 23), graduating MFA and BFA acting students from CalArts’ School of Theater participate in the West Coast installment of Actors Showcase at the Falcon Theater in Burbank. After a successful run at the New York Theater Workshop last month, the 33 actors—directed by Robert Cucuzza (Theater MFA 11)—re-create their scenes for Southern California-based agents, producers, managers, theater companies and other industry professionals.
For the first time, a video component has been added to the event. (We’ve posted a sneak preview of Showcase’s opening film montage, above.)
“The short film tries to capture the essence of each actor’s personality,” says Showcase producer Aaron L. McKinney. “It’s also a way for industry professionals to see the actors on screen, which is especially important for film and television productions.”
Only a few seats remain for each of the three scheduled Showcase performances. Please RSVP to attend.
